Spicing Things Up With Media

A great way to keep your Emergency First Response® participants engaged and on their toes is to introduce different media. Start the class by showing a funny video to engage participants immediately and get them in the mood for a great course. There are many videos available from the web, like this YouTube video of Mr. Bean at the bus stop.

 You can also have some fun by playing the Bee Gees song “Stayin’ Alive” during the CPR portion of the class. Not only will participants enjoy it, but the song also has the perfect tempo for delivering chest compressions at the correct rate.

 Plus, you can make your own media. Take photos throughout the course of participants completing different activities or practicing skills. Then, show them as a slide show at the end of the course to reinforce how much the participants have accomplished
